Reverse Osmosis install


I have a RO unit with a booster pump. Since the pump needs a power outlet, does that mean that I shouldn't put the unit under the sink...

I have seen videos where they put the RO unit under the sink, but none oif them have the booster pump on them.

So I assume that since it has to have power that it is best to put this unit in the basement...am I on the right track?

Thanks!

I don't see why you can't put a receptacle under the sink, especially a CFI type but, the pump may be a lot quieter in the basement than in a closed cabinet that will probably act like a drum.
